IF you had an MPG you might be able to pull it it off in Mach3 using Shuttle mode.

 if I run down to a point close to where I want to stop I can pause the program and then drag the feed override bar all the way to the bottom speed and with a well timed mouse click I can usually stop the action within a couple of thousandths of a point I want to reference but it's tedious. 

I ended up just drawing a chart in Excel that gives me the exact coordinate of X for every possible position of Y to the tenth of an inch.  I can refer to it when I need to tweak my code and for my purposes that's fine.  I just thought mach3 may have the ingrained capability and I just wasn't seeing it.

You could modify the code by adding a G4 in the code, but , that still doesn't do what you want.
Other than a spread sheet, backplot the code and measure in CAD as that can be anywhere you want and
as accurate as you wish.

I'm super new also.  I'm just winging it!  What gcode program are you using?
